Art Gallery of St. Albert

Julya Hajnoczky's Refugium is the new exhibit on display in the gallery’s main exhibition space. It presents photographs and sculptures that highlight the consequences of industrial human civilization: catastrophic habitat fragmentation and species loss. Hajnoczky’s photographs feature floating islands of plants, fungus, and insects suspended in a void as a way of directing our gaze to the overlooked life found at our feet. Until Saturday, March 19. 

Raven’s Tales is artist Rick Wolcott's take on four tales featuring the ever-charismatic trickster and teacher Raven for the new exhibit in the Feature Staircase Gallery. Each carving shares a different aspect of Raven and his influence on the world. Until May 7. Virtual tour with the curator will take place on March 16 at noon. Register via Eventbrite at artgalleryofstalbert.ca.

Keep Them Safe by Edmonton’s Jenny Keith is the new exhibit in the Feature Vault Gallery. Three large-scale and highly-detailed paintings showcase three endangered Alberta animals: a woodland caribou, a grizzly bear, and a whooping crane. The works highlight the complex and intertwined relationships that animals, plants, and insects share within their ecosystems. Keith meticulously and exhaustively researched every facet of her subjects, including their habitats, ranges, and diets, as well as the other creatures and plants of those habitats. Virtual tours with curator Emily Baker at noon on both Thursday, March 17 and Friday, April 1. Until Saturday, April 16.
